The National intelligencer has pinned the Globe and the official corps of paragraph its the Wall about he letter which the due de Broglie sent m. Pagot and m. A got communicated the government. The letter cannot be withheld a the people have a right know its con tells. On . Webster is rather responding a and thinks seriously of withdrawing his name As a candidate for the president ship. John Quincy Milams declares openly that wet 8ter cannot get Massachusetts and thinks Martin Van Burens a magician Quot a supper was announced at eleven. I happened be in the private parlor of the family a when the doors of the room were thrown open. The effect was Verj Fine. The several narrow tables were ranged completely round the Hall allowing space sufficient for two or three persons walk abreast Between them and the Wall. In the Centre of the area thus formed there was another set of tables or rather shelves in a Pyrear Nedical form and supporting a goodly array of whatever was calculated provoke the appetite and gratify the eyes of the company. I his Large pile was surmounted by confectionary of All sorts a fret work and Flowers. And a handsome chandelier and hundreds of Wax lights shed a remarkable brilliancy Over the whole scene. Suddenly 1 heard the voice of the old chief crying come ladies supper supper a and turning around i saw him leading a mrs. Polk with quite a Gallant air Van Buren followed with mrs. Donelson. Theo came or. Speaker with Soave one else. And who next think you of All Anim als under the Sun the Jackall of the Globe Blair after this truly there was no delicacy called for on the score of precedence. And none Wai manifested. All who could crammed in Pell Mell. Young ladies were squeezed nearly out of shape i mean their dresses Iren Erable gentlemen were pinned he Wall As Boya do flies their beavers knocked into cocked hats and stuck into their sides. It was a thorough Jam. Those who had the Good Luck reach the table paid due homage All the Quot articles Quot around them and he ludicrous tribulation which the rest of us found ourselves sharpened the wits and Trade humor More cutting and sarcastic. The president was ill High spirits and As he ii Alfed his Champaigne with the lady he led in cracked his joke with Quot or. Speaker Quot As he always entitled Polk and bowed and waved his hand the Young ladies who from time time gave his health he looked As if he had More amiability than Many Petioni give him credit for. Some rough Fel Lovvik against the Wall began growl and grumble at the length of time the ladies spent at Tabic. The bulgarians just us if they did any thing More than look at he splendid Sei out. Such lips 1 am sure never touched any thing Mure Sabu Taniai than Ambrosia. In Good time these divine creatures gave Way and we had a nearer experience of the promised land. What Odd company these mixed parties bring a Man into la the Early of the evening 1 had been struck with what seemed a highly a cute and interesting fit be. The features were Sharp and attenuated and of sickly paleness the lips thin but the interest of Van Buren. Has grossly misrepresented the democratic Republican convention which lately met in Harrisburg. The editor begins by calling it a whig Conven Tion. There has been no such convention in session in Harrisburg during the past week. It was a convention of the people composed of Jack son men. Whigs and anti masons who possess the principles of the old democratic party such As it was when Vao Buren was opposing Jalcs Madison and the War and William h. Harrison was fighting the Battles of his Quot some Twenty or thirty whigs friends of Daniel Webster seceded Quot is a Wanton and cold blooded falsehood and will excite nothing but aur Jirise and disgust in the Community. There were but two or three persons in the convention in favor of Webster s Nemih action and but one Man seceded and he did so not because he will not support the nomination but in consequence of his abuse of the democratic Republican convention because the members were not fools enough nominate a second electoral ticket for the same candidate can excite nothing but pity for the author. The fact is this is a Good sign. The abuse comes from the right Quarter. It shows the fears of the lieder alias for the safety or the magician. They dread the enthusiasm of the people for a 4efeddef of the country. They despair on account of United action in the part of the people a against Federal dictation. They have earful forebodings at the Way cry of Quot Harrison amp know that we shall break into their own ranks and scatter the Lei Gions of Van Bure ism the winds that the rank and file of their own party will desert the Black Flag of the Kinder Hooker for the Star spangled Baner under which Harrison fought Bod triumphed the Battle Fields of our country. Go on then and abuse the candidate of the people it will Only rally More enthusiastically the patriots of the Loiou around Bis Standard. Open the sluices of detraction and abuse it will Only corer the alumni actors with infamy and make the Victory More glorious and .
